As they did with this month’s Black History Month, today Marvel revealed details for the publisher’s plans to celebrate Asian American, Native Hawaiian, and Pacific Islander Heritage Month by spotlighting some of its most prominent AAPI super-heroes as well as acclaimed Asian and AAPI talent from throughout the comics industry in new stories and variant covers.

This year’s Marvel AAPI Heritage Month variant covers were crafted by best-selling cover artist Inhyuk Lee and depict some of Marvel’s brightest new stars including Iron Fist, Taegukgi, and Sister Dagger as well as longtime fan favorite Sister Grimm (Nico Minoru) of Runaways fame.
